originating from diseased liver, was cured by your

A Dojti Town Merchant,
Having passed several sleepless nights, disturb
ed by the agonies and cries of a suffering child,
und becoming convinced that Mrs. Wlnslow's
Soothing Syrup was Just the article needed, pro
cured a supply for the child. On reaching home
and acquainting his wife with what he had done,
she refused to have It administered to the child,
as she was strongly In favor of Homoeopathy.
That night the child passed In suffering, and the
parents without sleep. Returning home the day
following, the father found the baby still worse;
and while contemplating another sleepless night,
the mother stepped from the room to attend to
some domestic duties, and left the father with the
child. During her absence he administered a por
tion of the Soothing Syrup to the baby, and said
nothing. That night all hands slept well, and the
little fellow awoke In the morning bright and hap
py. The mother was delighted with the sudden
and wonderful change, and although at first offend
ed at the deception practiced upon her, has con
tinued to use the Syrup.and suffering crying babies
and restless nights have disappeared. A single
trial of the Syrup never yet failed to relieve the
bal y. and overcome the prejudices of the mother.

Accident to sv Steel Creek Farmer
Mr. Star G. Kendrick, a prominent
and well-known citizen of Steel Creek
township, met with a very serious ac
cident in the early part of this week,
from which he has suffered a great
deal, and is not yet out of danger. Mr.
Kendrick owns a cotton gin, saw mill,
etc., and on the day of the accident
was engaged in moving the engine a
short distance from its former loca
tion, thinking it unnecessary to take
down the smoke stack to make the re
moval. While at work near the engine
the stack fell, striking Mr. Kendrick
on the back of the head, injuring him
to such an extent that his friends
thought he could not recover. Reports
up to Friday night represented him to
be slightly improved, but still in a very
critical condition. We have been una
ble t learn whether the blow fractured
the skull of the injured man, or wheth
er he is suffering from a concussion.
Below will be found a few facts in
relation to the business of the Char
lotte postoflice which may be of inter
est, as they show the importance of
this point as a mail center. Some of
the statements are for one quarter only,
some for a month, and others for the
The number of mails received by
railroad daily is eight, while the same
number is sent out daily by rail. There
are 46 agents and railroad postal clerks
who run into the Charlotte postoflice.
For the 4th quarter of the year 1881
there were 424 valuable letters regis
tered, and 728 receiyed and delivered.
The small business in this department
can very well be accounted for by the
the presence of extra banking facili
ties here, as few cities in the country
are so well supplied with banks, con
sidering population. There are on an
average 2,300 registered letters in trans
it handled in this office per month,
while the number of postal cards and
letters distributed averages about 2,500
The following statement shows the
receipts of the office for last year, the
last quarter showing a slight increase
over the first :
First quarter $ 3,617.48
Second " 3,116.02
Third - 2,973.30!
Fourth " 3,733.12
Total $13,439.92 ;
For box rents the following amounts
were received for the same period :
First quarter $ 206.00
Second " 226.00
Third " 227.00
Fourth " 234.50
Total $ 893.50
Of the mails going out by rail one
leaves at 3 :10 a. m., one at 12 at night,
and one at 10:10 p. m.; the mails arriv
ing at night as follows: 12:27 a. mn and
2:30 a. m., making perhaps a larger
amount of night work necessary than
is the case with any office in the coun
try doing the same amount ot business.
Why the Fast Mall waa Discontinued.
It has heretofore been announced that
the fast mail from Washington to At
lanta over the Richmond and Danville
Railroad will be discontinued on and
after to-morrow. General Manager
Talcott has written the appended let
ter to Superintendent Sage, of Atlanta,
in which are given the reasons for its
withdrawal. It seems the trouble has
risen from the fact that the postoffice
department have had the right to dic
tate the schedule for the fast mail, and
in this fact lies the cause of the great
irregularity in that mail. Had tne
Richmond and Danville retained con
trol of making the schedule we have no
doubt that greater success would have
attended the enterprise, and in all prob
ability its usefulness would have be
come so great as to render its perma
nancv a necessity. The following is
the letter of Col. Talcott:
Office of General Manager,
RTfTfrMnmv Va Feb. 2. 1882.
To Captain I. Y. Sage, Superinten
dent, etc., Atlanta, Ga Sir: The "fast
mail from wasningion 10 Atlanta,
which has been run under an agree
ment with the United States postoffice
department by which special compen
sation has been allowed the railway
companies for this particular train, in
consideration of the department having
the right to dictate the schedule, will be
discontinued on and after Sunday, Feb
ruary 12, ls, lor tne iouowtng reasons :
First. The compensation allowed by
the department is not sufficient to cov
er the actual expenses of the train, and
as the schedule leaving New York at
a .ok a m rn 1 firs it of no service for
1 .uw j ,
through passengers, and it ean make no
Stops for local travel, no auuiuunai rev-
K rlori vrl f mm naasenirers to
CUUQ vw..- r
suDDlement the mail pay and thus meet
.. C l.nin
tne expenses ua wio womj. .
Second. The schedule required by the
department is not a practicable one at
all seasons and during all weather, and
as the department has given the rail
road companies notice that the compen
sation will be withheld when the fast
mail train fails to make the schedule
prescribed, the mail pay must necessa
rily fall very far short of the expenses
and particularly in view of the fact that
owing to the inahiUty of the depart
ment to pay for the fast mail except be
tween Washington and Toccoa, Ga., the
train has been run between Toccoa and
Atlanta wholly at the expense of the
Third. For several months past the
fast mail service has been maintained
only in deference to the wishes of the
department, and in the hope that a
more practicable and better schedule
could be substituted for the present one.
Such a schedule as has been proposed,
leaving Washington after the arrival of
the 9 p. m. train rrom jn e w i orx or in
continuation of the 12 o'clock (mid
night) train from New York if prefer
redand arriving at Atlanta, Athens,
Columbus and Augusta early in the
mornincr. would expedite the New York
letter mail not only to the points nam
ed, but probably, also, to Savannah, Ma
con, Columbus, and other points in
Georgia and South Carolina, as there is
good reason to Deneve tnat tne scnea
ules of connecting roads would general
ly be adjusted to more close connec
tions with such a train, some of them
having already expressed a willingness
to adopt the schedule indicated, and
amongst them the Central, of Georgia.
This, in connection with the fact that
none of the railroad companies, except
those included in the arrangement made
with the department more than a year
ago, have adjusted their schedules to a
connection with the present "fast mail."
would seem to demonstrate conclusive
ly not only that the proposed schedule
is the better of the two, but that the
present schedule is defective in some
If the "fast mail," as now run. afford
ed any material facility to the public
generally, the railroad companies might
feel justified in maintaining it, even at
a consideraoie expense to themselves ;
but as it actually delays the delivery of
mails which iormerly were sent by the
preceding train, and does not expedite
the mail to any point with regularity,
it is believed that no material incon
venience to any one will be caused by
